Most Favorable Review

Excellent quality

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL

Pros: I've got them running at 2140 MHz with 11, 11, 11, 30, 2T. They automatically worked without much tweaking, I just set it on the XMP setting in BIOS. 0 errors at this speed; complete stability.

Cons: The timings could be a little better. I'm sure I could get them better with a little more tweaking.

Overall Review: At the time of purchase, this was the cheapest 2133 MHz memory. I'm glad I went with this one.

Most Critical Review

Died after 5 months of light useage

TP-Link TL-SG108-M2 | 8 Port Multi-Gigabit Unmanaged Network Switch, Ethernet Splitter | 2.5G Bandwidth | Plug & Play | Desktop/Wall-Mount | Fanless Metal Design | Limited Lifetime Protection
TP-Link TL-SG108-M2 | 8 Port Multi-Gigabit Unmanaged Network Switch, Ethernet Splitter | 2.5G Bandwidth | Plug & Play | Desktop/Wall-Mount | Fanless Metal Design | Limited Lifetime Protection

Cons: Died within 5 months of light usage. This is unacceptable in a networking environment. It is also unmanaged which is pretty annoying

Overall Review: Skip out on this one to save yourself headaches

Excellent for bridge

D-Link DAP-1650 Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
D-Link DAP-1650 Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender

Pros: I am using this as a network bridge between the main router in my house (on main floor) and my wired network that is on the 3rd floor. The DAP-1650 performs great and only needed to be rebooted once in the year that I have had it. I am getting 4 out of 5 bars and the router and the bridge are definitely not in the optimal positions. The interface is simple and just works. There are more complex options for if you are running this device in other configurations but I do not use them since I am using it as a simple bridge. I get the full speed from my cable modem on all of my wired PCs that connect via this bridge.

Cons: It's a little on the light side as far as weight is concerned so sometimes it falls over if something brushes against it (I have it on the floor). This is not a real problem but I have to include something in the cons box

It's a great cable!

GearIT GI-HDMI20-WH-10FT 10 ft. White High-Speed 2.0 HDMI Cable with Ethernet Support 4K UHD 3D and Audio Return Male to Male
GearIT GI-HDMI20-WH-10FT 10 ft. White High-Speed 2.0 HDMI Cable with Ethernet Support 4K UHD 3D and Audio Return Male to Male

Pros: The cable works exactly as intended and does not give me any issues with 4k content. The price was good

Cons: It's a bit hard to manipulate because the cable is thick but that's to be expected; I have to write something in the cons.

Great item

GearIT GIWBT1A White Universal Travel AC Adapter Wall Charger Converter Plug to US EU AU UK
GearIT GIWBT1A White Universal Travel AC Adapter Wall Charger Converter Plug to US EU AU UK

Pros: Worked exactly as I needed in the UK. I had one cell phone plugged into the AC part and another plugged into the USB part. I did not have any issues. The price is great.

Cons: I can see how some people may get confused about getting the prongs out but I found it very easy.

Great Upgrade!

PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 390X 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXR9 390X 8GBD5-PPDHE
PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 390X 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXR9 390X 8GBD5-PPDHE

Pros: It's a very nice looking card with a solid and sturdy backplate. The cooler is massive which is a good thing in my book. I am now able to play all of my games on the highest settings with 60+ FPS. It is such a great upgrade over my 3x HD 6870s that I was running in threeway Crossfire. This one card performs about twice as good as all 3 of those cards working together and about 9 times better for games that did not support Crossfire. I was able to get a nice overclock on the stock voltage (1082 MHz on the core and 1585 MHz {6340 MHz effective} on the memory). When I pushed it any higher on the stock voltage I was getting some mild artifacting. The card is quiet compared to the 3x 6870 I was running before and quiet in general. I don't ever really hear the fans ramping up and the cooler is able to keep the card in the 60 C to 66 C range under full load.

Cons: No cons so far that I can think of besides the packaging and accessories were a bit spartan. You only get a power cable and a CD and a little installation leaflet. I don't even have a CD/DVD ROM!

Overall Review: My Specs: Intel Core i7 2600K clocked at 4.4 GHz GSkill 16 GB of DDR3 2133 MHz Cooler Master 1000 Watt Power Supply
